All of this cold weather has us longing for the Spring/Summer months and the return of the outdoor wedding, so we thought, in preparation for sunnier days ahead, we’d round up 20 really bloody cool outdoor ceremony styling ideas to get your creative juices flowing.
Whether you’re planning a garden party with a beautiful floral arch (like the one above from Newcastle and Hunter Valley fave Film and Foilage) or a hinterland soiree at brand new North Coast venue Ardeena Events (complete with a tipi, wild blooms and healing crystals, below) there is something in this post for everyone.
Keep scrolling and you’ll see everything from island inspo with threaded frangipanis and foraged palm fronds to bohemian carpet paths, a sculptural wooden round arbour by clever Melbourne folk Good Grace & Humour and even outdoor inner-city industrial ceremony setups (because just because you’re getting married in the city doesn’t mean you can’t have an outdoor wedding!)
And right at the very bottom, you’ll find our draped silk and floral dreams come to life thanks to the handy work of Jade Mcintosh Flowers, another go-to for Hunter Valley brides. And let’s not forget the gorgeous floral pillars (second from the bottom) by Queensland fave Mrs Gibbons Flowers. You’ll find more of their respective gorgeous work here and here.
Once you’re done pinning to your heart’s content click here for a list of our favourite florists from around Australia. If you have questions (like the approx cost for creating any of the above or below ceremony setups) the florists on this list will be the humans to chat to, they are a wealth of floral knowledge after all.
